Symptoms

Oracle Communications Messaging Server 7.0.5.38.0 64bit (built Feb 26 2016)
libimta.so 7.0.5.38.0 64bit (built 06:34:15, Feb 26 2016)
Using /san/mail/ms/config/imta.cnf (compiled)
NSS Library Version: 3.21 Basic ECC

A user has one very large attachment in the Draft folder of size 2.25GB.

Syntax used for backing up the user's entire mailbox : /san/mail/ms/sbin/imsbackup -f -x

No errors seen in the backup. Backup file size is proper and normal as expected:
$ ls -ltr /nas/megaoverflow/SavedStoreHash/xxx/=mailmove1.bkp
-rw-------+ 1 name group 4457031680 2017-03-30 12:18 /nas/megaoverflow/SavedStoreHash/xxx/=mailmove1.bkp

However, while there is no problem with the attachment, imsrestore with the -t option output gives the Data Size as a negative number for the large attachment.
